What is desired is non-desire. It is learning to unlearn. This reminds us of who we have always been. Thus, care for nothing but the Tao to care for all things. – Lao Tzu
Comment: Taoist ideas tend to be obscure and expressive of multiple meanings. The notion of non-desire is probably better expressed as less-desire since to actually desire non-desire is a self-canceling contradiction.
But to reduce desire by being aware of the consequences of the mindless pursuit of desires is…..desirable. 🙂
Take a few moments to think about what you want in the next few minutes. Simply adding a momentary pause for thought before acting on a desire can be life-changing.
